Notre Dame fans find several ways to stay warm at snowy tailgate

Posted:

The snow was falling around Notre Dame tailgaters Saturday.  Kelly Baughan said, "Not ideal football weather by any means."

Or is it?  Rachelle Bodigan said, "I love the weather, it's perfect for football season."

Guess it depends who you ask.  But whether you love it or hate it, you have to stay warm.  And fans had several ways of doing that, "lots of layers, all Notre Dame layers, we're ready to go," said Bodigan.  Kelly Baughan said, "I got my snuggie on, we got blankets, hand warmers."  Tom Midgett said, "we find that a nice bowl of chili and a can heater kinda do the job for us."

For Midgett and his crew, engineering came into play too.  They made their tent as enclosed as possible.  "This time of year you gotta take all precautions, do whatever it takes to just kinda keep the wind off you."

A lot of people were using heaters and sitting in their cars.  Some people even had electric blankets plugged into generators.  Others used more unique ways to generate heat, like singing.

Fans knew it would be a tough day to go to a game.  "We kinda debated whether or not we were gonna do this today but we said what the heck last game of the year, senior day, if they can bear it on the field, we can bear it in the parking lot," said Midgett.

But they also knew it would all be worth it.  "We're at the greatest campus at the greatest school," said Midgett.  And Baughan said, "just love Notre Dame football, love the Irish, last game, we gotta come out."

Hot chocolate was also very popular Saturday among the fans.
